    Anyone know the best way to mount a flashlight to a scope?And no not duct tape .My wife suggested that already.I am looking for a double ring or something similar.May have to weld two rings together but if someone knows where to buy one it would be better.

    I would look at using the Surefire G2 light ($34) and buying one one the clamping brackets for it to mount to the picatinny rails on the AR and mount the rail to the gun somewhere.

    The G2 will light up way past any normal flashilight and is very small and light.

    2 screws and the picatinny rail mounts to anything. The light brackets run as low as $20.

    Yep, TPS makes a ring that carries a Picatinny rail section that works great:

    I have the one that Eaglet showed and a surefire with integrated pic mount. The surefire isn't near as brite but is more compact and only has the pressure switch to fumble with, plus cost more then three time as much.

    Yeah, that's a good way to go. I've found cheap Leupold Rifleman aluminum 1" rings work well for mounting G2's:

    That'll work on any chunk of rail mounted to the rifle or on the scope using those C.O.R.A. rings posted above.

    BTW, you can get high powered LED's for G2's which are a couple times brighter than what they come with. It makes for a pretty good combo.
